The Idroedil Group was established 35 years ago in the province of Imperia, at Arma di Taggia, for managing solid urban waste and inert materials.
Innovation, but especially farsightedness, are the leitmotifs of the business, and which the Chairman Carlo Ghilardi has always wanted to pursue as the aim of its management. Now his son Massimo, Director, proceeds in the same way with determination also at international level.
As far back as 30 years ago Carlo Ghilardi produced biogas for heating flower-growing greenhouses, starting out from waste.
Nowadays, in terms of waste management, 100,000 metric tons of product are handled and about 2 MW of biogas are produced. The company has also started management activities abroad, exporting the know-how it has accrued over the years in Italy-
Early in 2000 the group began to invest in the field of alternative energy. In entrepreneurial terms the company has co-invested in several industrial patents in the so-called early-stage, contributing towards industrialising them.
